MMIW in Latin America with Dr. Lydia Huerta
Manage episode 327587405 series 3336197
In honor of National Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives Awareness Day, we draw attention to the epidemic in Abya Yala (Latin America) of missing and murdered indigenous women, girls, two-spirit, and transgender relatives. In the MMIWGTSTR movement, northerners often forget to include and think about relatives south of the imaginary, colonial border, and how they often times have EVEN LESS protection than those native people north of the imaginary, colonial border. Here to break it down for us is Dr. Lydia Huerta, a binational scholar of both Indigenous and colonial descent who has studied and presented the topic extensively.
